eStudio 7 is a groupware solutions product from the SamePage.com company, which has been specializing in project management software since 1999. eStudio was designed as a software-as-a-service alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Sharepoint, with the goal of providing company-wide connected communication and collaboration without having to buy and maintain servers.
Because eStudio 7 was designed as a software-as-a-service groupware program, there is absolutely no software necessary to download or install in order to access it. Team members simply log into the service remotely, from any computer with an internet connection and web browser. This has the added benefit of making eStudio 7 completely operating system independent, perfect for a project with team members using a variety of computers. eStudio 7 offers a free 30 day trial from their website, http://www.same-page.com. Currently, eStudio 7 does not offer support for mobile devices such as smart phones or PDAs.
Who it is for
Since eStudio 7 eliminates the need for expensive and complicated server maintenance, it's suited for any project manager who doesn't have their own IT project at their disposal. It's also perfect for projects where team members might have to access the program from a variety of locations, since it is easily accessible from any computer with an internet connection and web browser.
Unlimited Users - With no per user license, eStudio 7 will automatically scale along with a company's needs. Since customers pay based on what features they need, companies don't have to pay for software that they won't use. Each module of the program is available on an as-needed basis, so if a company only needs an inventory solution, they don't have to end up paying for a host of other tools that they don't need.
Free Training - SamePage.com will train project managers at no charge and will assist in organizing eStudio for maximum efficiency. In addition, tech support and customer service is always free and only a phone call away. Between eStudio 7's intuitive interface, and SamePage.com's dedicated support staff, project managers will be able to master the software in no time.
